SCHOTT Solar says its sales partners have received their first deliveries of the new SCHOTT ASI 86 thin-film solar modules, produced at the company's new manufacturing facility in Jena, Germany.
‘The production quantities for 2008 are almost all sold already,’ says Michael Schmidt, sales manager at SCHOTT Solar. ‘We have to thank our sales partners for their support and the trust they've placed in us.’
The SCHOTT ASI 86 is well-suited for large roofs and open spaces, and produces around 86 W of nominal power output. Especially with a less favourable roof orientation and in warmer regions, the ASI modules produce a higher energy yield than crystalline modules, the company says. Convenient installation is also a positive economic factor, SCHOTT adds. The ready-to-use, lightweight ASI 86 glass foil modules are designed for simple and inexpensive system integration.
